I have a LOTS of NOID iris that I still have to divide this year. Anyone interested in some trades?
rocky mtn iris swap?
Very pretty iris, Greenjay. I have more iris than I can handle right now. Not enough space.
Those are gorgeous, Greenjay. I was out of town when you posted. New iris are out for me as well. I have way too many already. Almost all named. But I would send you some if you would like. Colors you don't have. let me know what you are interested in. I suspect that photo of being Jurassic Park, a Dykes Medal winner -- but can't guarantee it.
Yes I have no Iris to trade with you today, but maybe we can work something out.
Brand new barren rock and dirt covers most of the landscape. However some of my beds have been developed out front and are now host to a plethora of reblooming daylillies. I am sure some Iris would work out very nice for the short term until I get my Iris beds going.
I live in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.
I have found that iris are the best thing to plant first in a new bed, even if it seems that the soil is not ready yet. The roots don't go down that far, and if you cover them lightly nov - march with chopped leaves, then uncover in march, they do spectacularly well. they also display well with rocks, which we have lots of.
Now you see why I am so in love with them! I have 1/2 acre of rocks and am building slow as fast as I can but not as fast as I would like.
Lovely iris, Katlian, but I am only interested in giving iris away, not receiving any. If you can think of any colors you would like to have, I would consider sending them to you. Maybe others would like to have the ones I would have gotten in a trade.
i would be happy to trade NOIDs in quantity. Just dmail me with addresses.
Would you like some of mine as well? As long as you don't send me any in exchange.
I insist. I will be dividing soon. In fact I have already started. Will save you some. Iris society rhizome sale is this weekend.
Katlian & Greenjay, do you want to trade just a couple? Paja, I would love some of yours too. I'll take my chances on color - I have only the one in my pic plus a pure white.
sure. since you are nearby I could save some postage also and deliver them. Just dmail me.
I will send you some lisabees. I am just starting to thin. Are you in the address exchange?
Well, I would like to send at least 4 rhizomes to each person who wants them to make sure they get both colors.
All I have to trade/give are some NOID purple iris. None of my others are ready to divide yet. If anyone wants them, D-mail me.
As I recall, Denverjude, you have some really lovely iris. I will not be able to plant any more new iris this year though. But I encourage others to take you up on your offer. Katlian, too.
Thank you Paja, yes I'm in the address exchange (as of 5 minutes ago).
Katlian, 4 of mine for 4 of yours works for me.
DenverJude, If yours are different from mine http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/fp.php?pid=6869898, I'd be glad to swap.
Greenjay, I sent you a Dmail.
Okay, I have started digging. Will ship in a week or two. Good for you on the address exchange, lisabees.
@ lisabees: my iris are very similar to yours. I think the beards are white instead of yellow, but I can't remember for sure.
@lisabees: here is what I have http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/fp.php?pid=6514257
Denverjude & lisabees, I think your irises are different. I don't see any yellow on Jude's iris, and yellow shoulders on lisabees. That is a big difference in iris identification.
